Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

@Arjan: couldn't resist, just had to upvote your comment. :P – studiohack Sep 4 '10 at 22:23
@Studio, that was an auto-comment, which has been auto-deleted as well. – Arjan Sep 5 '10 at 7:19

Apart from a good feeling there is a silver badge: Pundit - left 10 comments with score of 10 or more. This badge is given once. It has been awarded 37 times in meta and 128 times in SO, so it's rather exclusive.

No points, but your upvoted comment stays visible when there are many comments on an answer, such that non-upvoted comments get hidden.
